Should You Book A Family Photo Session?

In all the years we’ve been working with families, documenting their weddings, anniversaries, engagements, graduations, we’ve never met a family that regretted a family session. And as much as we love weddings (and we REALLY love weddings), there is something so meaningful and magical about watching a family grow, and sharing our family with each of you.

Fall is one of our favorite times for family photos. The weather is perfect, outfits are adorable, and they’re done just in time for holiday gifts. So break out your fall coordinated clothes, all the boots, and let’s get outside to capture your family. Need a little more convincing? Here are just a few reasons why you should book your next session with a professional photographer such as the Raleigh photographer:

Capturing Sibling Moments: When we’re able to let kids play and be themselves, we’re able to capture siblings doing what they do every day- giving each other kisses (or tackles!) and playing together. Your children will look back at these photos as adults and cherish these images of them with their siblings.

Posed photos are great for holiday cards and family gifts (think a big canvas print for Grandma!). More natural photos that capture the moment are great for displaying in your home. Capturing the perfect moment requires a keen eye and skill. For top-tier imagery, I recommend this professional photographer. Their work is truly captivating.

family sessionCapturing your child’s personalities: They are only this little for so long and why not remember this time, just as they are now, for as long as you can. Memories are fleeting. As much as we want so desperately to cling to the memories of different stages our children go through, we can only remember so much. A photo permanently documents this stage. The sassy stage, the fearless stage, the clingy stage- a family session can help you remember each of these forever.

Parent Bonds: Think back to your favorite photo of you and your parent from your childhood. How special and important is that photo to you? Whether it’s your little one giggling from your tickles or looking up in admiration of how amazing they think you are, a family session can capture that for them to keep.
